Led by the Chief Executive, the Executive Leadership Team oversees the strategic direction, operational and financial performance of the Group with the aim of building the world’s leading contracting manufacturer of orthopaedic implants
Our Executive Leadership Team consists of the following senior leaders.
I spent all my professional life in the world of orthopedic products. Being an entrepreneur by heart, I am beyound proud when I look at what the hg medical team is accomplishing every single day. Being founder and the CEO of a leading world class contract manufacturer of orthopedic implants has been a fast and exciting journey for me and I enjoy seeing it growing so rapidly. Trying to be the spearhead in production technology, capability and efficiancy is a driving factor of hg medical and my daily motivation to exceed our customers expectations.
Born in Zimbabwe, Africa and moving to Europe in 1999, Craig is an Engineer by trade who has focused on orthopaedics for the last nineteen years.
With a career both in contract manufacturing and in the OEM side of the industry as a Technical, Quality and Regulatory Director, Craig can fuse the customer's needs with our offerings. Craig's focus is improving our operations and incorporating our customers' downstream requirements into our processes, adding value far greater than the product itself.
Having designed and developed products, managed regulatory pathways and approvals, spent endless hours in the operation room, attained a University Certificate in Orthopaedic Medical Technology and a Post Graduate Certificate in Business Administration on his way to his MBA, he is well-placed to fuse the demands of all stakeholders into the hg strategic offering.
Craig's knowledge of the space, as comprehensive as it is, is second to his passion for contributing to the growth, development and value-adding offerings of hg medical.
When I started working at hg medical as CFO in March 2022, I immediately felt not only the growing spirit of our company but also its attidtude towards innovation, development and improving right from the beginning.
This is a very motivating work environment also from the financial and administrative side. Playing an acitve role in the hg medical story together with my colleagues and all employees of this company is a great experience in my professional life.
Having studied Economics at the University of Cologne, I have served in several management positions in midsize and large cooperations. My experience in acting as General Manager or CFO of privately owned, public or PE backed companies clearly contributes to the financial and management side of hg medical´s way to become the world leading manufacturer of orthopedic implants for upper extremity, lower extremity and spine products.
